Opportunities for young people

Posted on May 16th, 2012 by Kathie

Do you know disabled children who want to have their say on health?

CDC would like to speak to children and young people with neurodisabilities about their health, what health outcomes are important to them and how the NHS can measure them.

The voice of children and young people and their families is central to the CHUMS project, and CDC wants to listen to their views health and make sure that health outcomes work for children with neurodisabilities and their families.

This is a vital opportunity for and young people to have their say. If you work with children and young people who would be interested in taking part in this study we would like to hear from you. Please contact Andrew Fellowes at or on 020 7843 6060

International online Network for Disabled Young People

We are two disabled young people, planning to set up an international online network for disabled young people aged 16-30, to network, skill and knowledge share.

We believe that by providing an interactive space for disabled young people to do so will not only allow young disabled people from around the world to share and in turn, learn new knowledge and skills, but also that it will empower disabled young people to connect and create positive change in their communities. We intend this network to be built and run by disabled young people, for disabled young people.

We have created a questionnaire to help us design the site. The survey is only 9 short questions and will close on  27 May 2012.

We also have a facebook page that we will using to keep in touch with people until the site is launched
